I only hate the fact that the guy at the entrance doesn’t give tickets, just takes the cash but you are not sure if the money goes to the govt and not in his pockets.

Striking nature. Scary car drive up the hill, but well worth it. Medeval monestary at a spectacular location. A bit scary way to walk the last bit for me with a touch of vertigo. But wort it and walking back was not hard.
